ASUS is set to add another smartphone to its expansive Zenfone series on February 7 when it will hit India with the Zenfone 3S Max. The ASUS Zenfone 3S Max is a successor to the Zenfone 3 Max and it retains some of the features of its predecessor.
One prominent feature which the ASUS Zenfone 3S Max retains is the massive 5,000mAh battery for a long lasting uptime. The battery is perhaps, the biggest feature on the Zenfone 3S Max and it goes even beyond that, as the smartphone comes with support for reverse charging, making it a power bank on its own. The device also features a metal body crafted from aluminum and it also comes with a front fingerprint sensor embedded under the home button which ASUS claims is capable of unlocking the device in half a second and packs fingerprint recognition of up to five fingers.
